Description

Amos (mailing list May 2011) asked for the following (I think this is what he is meaning)

Have metadata - course code - course name

Lots of exam papers for each course. Want to have a bookshelf with course codes, and papers underneath. Instead of just having the course code listed, he wants code and name on the bookshelf.

I assume that there is a one-to-one relationship between code and name. Could classify on code or name, but the problem is the bookshelf won't have the other metadata. So really you want to classify on concatenated metadata. eg code+name, so then both fields would appear in the bookshelf.

This should be easy to do. But what about if there are multiple values? do we do all combinations? or limit to the first value?
